If someone could invent a way to carry a coffee on your bike they'd make a fortune. Wheeling a bike while carrying a hot beverage is just no fun and really quite difficult. The problem is that a strong, hot coffee is the ideal recovery drink after a commute cycle. So surely someone could think of a carrier? Any ideas are welcome.
After my fun cycling in with A yesterday I picked a pace person this morning. He had cleats but they were for shoes you could walk in as well as cycle, he was in proper lycra shorts but his t-shirt wasn't too flash and he was carrying a pannier. And off we went. And we really went.
I got in in 40 minutes this morning, much quicker than my usual 45-50 minute time. And aiming to keep up with someone really kept me going on hills and inclines. As far as I know he didn't see my ardent following and probably didn't clock what I was up to but it was useful to have a benchmark, especially as it looks like I'll be doing another midnight ride soon.
Me, a bike nerd. Naaaaaaaaaah!
